Allotments are privately owned and are leased by the Council and then sub leased to us. BGLA consists of 38 full plots that can be split into half plots. 2016 rent is £20 for a full plot and £10.50 for a half.
The main entrance is in Bowling Green Lane opposite the Cross Keys Public House (The Gardeners Retreat). It was set up during WW2 during the ‘Dig for Victory’ plan. Boundaries are: houses, field, Irelands stable and Bowling Green Lane. A wildlife area with pond was set up 6/7 years ago. The 2016 Orchard project has received a grant and will be completed this season.
